Is there a red-rooibos-free variety? I get migraines from red rooibos teas, although so far, green rooibos is safe. Just curious!

DAVIDsTEA

Unfortunately, this is the only option for the time being but not the only cake tea that we’re launching this April.

Maria Eve

So excited for this tea words can’t describe! Love all things birthday cake flavoured!

Amariel

Oooh! This sounds good! Hopefully the rooibos isn’t too prevalent, since I am not overly fond of it.

Maria Eve

K..so really not that excited anymore…and kida disappointed! Went online today to purchase and saw the ingredients list:
Rooibos, honeybush, green rooibos, freeze-dried ice cream bits (Milkfat and nonfat milk, corn syrup, sugar, high fructose corn syrup, strawberry puree(strawberries, hight fructose corn syrup, sugar water, modified food starch, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, FD&C Red #40), whey, cocoa (processed with alkali) stablilized and emulsified by mono and diglycerides, guar gum, cellulose gum and carrageenan, articifical flavoring*, Red #40, and vegetable annatto color), sprinkles (Sugar, corn starch, partially hydrogenated veg. oil, soy lecithin, dextrin, confectioner’s glaze, natural/artificial flavoring*, Red 40 Lake, Yellow 6 Lake, Carnauba wax, Yellow 5 Lake, Blue 1 Lake, Red 3 and Red 40).
:( Your teas are normally much more natural…wish you could have made it with better ingredients! Unfourtunately won’t be buying this one!

Amariel

Ooh, hmmm. High fructose corn syrup is definitely to be avoided. Might have to give this one a pass based on this ingredient list.

It does happen to be called BIRTHDAY CAKE so I’ll give it try regardless of the ingredients ..it’s an indulgence tea so it shouldn’t be a surprise that it’s an INDULGENCE of ingredients ..not bad to have one once in a while…moderation always though. and to each their own…cup of tea.

katgolik

It’s on my order list right now..can’t wait to try!
